The 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War is a time for reflection on the past. To mark this special Veterans Weekend, Findmypast wanted to help everyone find out more about their family history, discover what their relatives did in the War or start their family trees.

As part of this, they are hosted their first ever Live Broadcast. Featuring an expert panel of historians and guest speakers, the broadcast is designed to help you get further with your family history research. The talks covered a wide range of topics – from getting started to breaking down brick walls. There was even a special segment on tracing your Irish roots with Irish family history expert, Brian Donovan.

You can watch the full broadcast back here or choose which short segments you’re most interested in and just watch those ones.
